Is there an age requirement for ESL teachers? Are there any positions open for recently retired ESL teachers?

Question Details

I am interested in Dubai, Costa Rica, China and Africa. Thanks


Not typically but sometimes. China, for example, has a mandatory retirement age (which means that you wouldn't be able to legally work / apply for a work visa after a certain age).

Most countries in Africa have volunteer-based positions and, therefore, no age restriction (on the upper end at least).

Costa Rica might actually be your best bet. Then again, I'm a little biased -- I taught there and loved it :)

Not sure about Dubai.
